Tiga Island (Pulau Tiga in Malay) is one of a group of uninhabited islands located in Kimanis Bay, Malaysia off the western coast of Sabah. The island covers a total area of approx 6,07 km2 (2,34 ml2).
- The islands were formed on September 21, 1897 when an earthquake on Mindanao was the reason for a volcanic eruption close to Borneo. Pulau Tiga Island has two active mud volcanos at its highest part. Tiga is one of the 3 islands making up Tiga Island National Park. The headquarters of the park are on the island and comprise an office complex, as well as an accommodation for visiting scientists and the park staff.
- Located 48 km (30 ml) south of Kota Kinabalu and Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, the Tiga Island National Park is easily reached by driving the 140 km (87 ml) to Kuala Penyu, a settlement on the tip of Klias Peninsula, from where it's another 18 km (11 ml), or about 30 min, by boat.
- Another way to get there is by chartering a speed boat out of Kota Kinabalu and sailing to Tiga Island, or flying to Labuan and chartering a speed boat out of Labuan Island.
- Pulau Tiga Island became popular through the Survivor TV series. It was the setting of Survivor: Borneo, which was the show's first American season. It was also the setting of the British shows' first seasons. The island was rumoured to be the setting of upcoming 3rd season of Australian Survivor, but it was later unveiled that Samoa would be the location for the series.
